It may not be possible for some couples to achieve pregnancy without assisted reproductive techniques (ART), such as intra-uterine insemination (IUI) or in-vitro fertilization (IVF). If you and your doctor have determined that ART is a treatment choice, acupuncture is an excellent choice for supportive care. Many studies show that acupuncture treatments improve the outcome of ART.
At Quan Yin Healing Arts we have assisted many couples in reaching their goal of delivering a healthy baby. Utilizing both acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine, with or without ART, women with a variety of diagnoses have given birth, including women with PCOS, endometriosis, premature ovarian failure, or unexplained infertility.
Karen Borla is a fellow of the American Board of Oriental Reproductive Medicine, ABORM. The ABORM has been formed by leading professionals in Oriental Reproductive Medicine who have come together voluntarily with a resolve to meet the patient and physician demand for a demonstration of knowledge of care in the field. ABORM members have demonstrated competency in the treatment of infertility by passing rigorous examination that measures knowledge of both western and TCM reproductive medicine - both male and female.
Safety, efficacy, and integrity are paramount concerns when working with the fertility patient, and treatment is approached with communication, teamwork and supportive care in mind.
